A.D. 1189. KING RICHARD SAILS FOR CALAIS. King Richard departed from the city of Canterbury, on the fifth day of December, for Dover, in order to cross over ; for there many ships had assembled by his command from different parts of England. On the day after his arrival at Dover, Roger, the abbat elect of Saint German's, at Selby, received his bene;diction at Dover, on Saint Nicholas' day, from Hugh, bishop of Durham, by the king's command, notwithstanding the prohibition of Geoffrey, archbishop elect of Tork. On this, Geoffrey, the archbishop elect of York, becoming sensible that without the intervention of money he would in nowise be able to gain his brother's favour, promised him three thousand pounds sterling, for the purpose of so ingratiating himself : on which, the king restored to him the archbishopric of York, and confirmed the same to him by his charter, and restored to him all the lay fees which king Henry, his father, had given him, on either side of the sea ; namely, in England, the vili of Wycombe, with its appurtenances, the county of Giffard, in Normandy, and in Anjou, the honor of Blauge, with its appurtenances. The said king also released to God and Saint Peter of York, and to the said Geoffrey, archbishop elect of York, and to all that were able to succeed him in the archbishopric of York, all his lands and those of his canons in York and Nottingham for ever, both from forestal regard,41 and all other demands and impositions of forest and foresters, and gave them free power, and by his charter confirmed the same, to take venison throughout all their prebends in York shire and Nottinghamshire. In addition to this, Hugh, bishop of Durham, Hubert, bishop of Salisbury, Henry, dean of the church of York, and Bucard, treasurer of the same church, by the king's command, withdrew the appeals which they had made against the said archbishop elect of York ; and the said archbishop elect, at the king's request, confirmed to the said Henry, the deanery of York, and to Bucard, the treasurership; and to Hugh, bishop of Durham, he confirmed all the privileges and covenants which had been made between the said bishop and Boger, archbishop of York, and promised, by the seal of his consecration, that he would confirm the same. After these matters were arranged, Bichard, king of Eng 4 1 A fee to the court of regard, which was holden for each forest every three years, for the purpose of expeditation, or cutting off three claws of the fore-feet of dogs, to prevent them from killing the deer.
